Nice !! So I take it he won't be getting the skull done  :chuckle:

Depending on how blowed up that might be a really cool skull

Helped my best bud harvest his first bear yesterday for the Aug 15th Opener. (He's a member here and gave me permission to post for him). Not the biggest bear in my secret spots  8) but a good eating / first bear! Longest spot to shot  on Bears I've been a part of. From Spot to Trigger pull had to of been 30 min. (Felt like 3 hours!) When they're on the smaller side they get lost in the brush!  :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:  He had a 70 yard chest shot, hit a few inches high.... Center punched between the eyes! Quick Expire that way..

Lot's of berries! 1 down few more to go!

Do you have any pics of the paws? I'm trying to judge the size of the tracks I saw today! Good job  :tup:

One reasonable rule of thumb is width of forepaw in inches roughly correlates to length in feet
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Alright good to know. I was measuring from front paw to back paw thinking wow these are small. Probably decent sized bears
